On some particular questions, if you break down the responses by political affiliation, there are discernible differences between Republicans and Democrats . But the composite picture still points to more open-minded attitudes toward others who are different from ourselves than the political rhetoric that has been deployed to win elections would suggest. For example, a majority (58 percent) of respondents believe that Muslims face a lot of discrimination. Clearly that view is more common among Democrats, 75 percent of whom answered yes. But even among Republicans, 44 percent shared that view, as did 57 percent of independents.
